Who has ever lived with their own philosophy
intact, in a bubble, and found good reason?
If there is a God… may I be found by Him and
looking for the truth of his existence, not abrasion,
the rubbing away of thoughts on God to render
us a smooth stone without inscription or purpose,
to take “The Good News- The Gospel” and life
eternal as “mumbo-jumbo” is secular cowardice.
With the explosion of interest in Reiki, it must be understood as a portal to spiritual involvement and modified by physical movement. Let me explain…
The chakras act as conduits or conductors for what is called kundalini or serpent energy. They say this force lies coiled but dormant at the base of the spine like a snake. When awakened during meditation, it is supposed to travel up the spine activating each chakra as it surges upward. When the kundalini force hits the crown chakra, the person experiences enlightenment or Self-realization. This mystical current results in the person knowing himself to be God.
This doesn’t sound very Christian to me, and you? Why then are there so many people running to it? Would you say reason is being implemented here or not?
1 Kings 9:15 And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised; for to build the house of the LORD, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer.
Obvious to any thinking and rational being, the Temple Mount (the wall of Jerusalem) holds to reason for sorrow: loss of the Temple, a historic monument with Israeli claims of origination and exclusivity to culture, and precious in past grandeur to prophecy foretold. One group plans to rebuild the Temple, just look to this link. This also speaks loudly with thought of Daniel’s prediction, found in Daniel 11:31. Of the 1,817 prophecies made throughout the Bible… all of those told us in the OT (Old Testament) have been fulfilled. I see an obvious pattern, and you?
Hazor was an area with vast importance to commerce and power affiliated with it. See one such article on Hazor here.
Daniel 11:31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.
Megiddo and Gezer hold significant truth to the faith of Christianity, and spoken of in the OT (Old Testament).
Here is an article on Gezer and the bilingual Boundary Stone being discovered there and at Megiddo, the Chapel of the Centurion, where is found tiles with inlay… and an inscription,”God Jesus Christ.”
Geological evidence is proving one story against another… when present! See this for yourself here. Reason… let’s use it and not just say it is the cause for disbelief- the the relief of reason is more like it!
Matthew 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
(27-31) Christ casts out a dumb spirit.
Statement by Peter W. (an atheist)
Follow reason and the facts and you will never find God. God – like all gods – however can be found in delusion and the imagination.
Yotam Tepper a Ph.D. candidate at Tel Aviv University with a dissertation in progress on Legio in the Roman Period. As a researcher and archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), he has directed numerous excavations and surveys in Israel for the last 12 years. His latest project includes survey and excavation in the region of the Roman military camp at Legio (el-Lajjun). As part of this work, he conducted extensive excavation at the Megiddo prison compound where a Christian Prayer Hall from the end of the Roman period was discovered. His research focuses on the Roman Period, with special interest in the daily life of civilians and soldiers.
[… Tepper also uncovered the famous 3rd-century Christian prayer
hall at Megiddo Prison, the mosaics of which bore dedicatory in-
scripting to “God Jesus Christ,” including one sponsored by a centurion
A centurion was in charge of one hundred (100) soldiers… and in a place of command and recorded as in a position of great authority and respect.
[The abstract below if from Matthew Henry Commentary]
Nature may make us earnest, but it is only grace that can work faith. Christ touched their eyes. He gives sight to blind souls by the power of his grace going with his word, and he puts the cure upon their faith. In Christ is enough for all. And whatever our wants and burdens are, we need no more for supply and support, than to share in the mercy of our Lord Jesus.
This sounds like it is being spoken by a man in authority, in fact an officer in the Roman army, one whom regards his servant and would have the faith in Jesus to make such a claim (for help) and marches past the imaginary (figment of mind) to practical and real anticipation. See this below.
Then there is the atheist turned christian… by what he looked for to disprove veracity and authenticity of the Bible (and its claims) and turns his opinion on its head- one Lee Strobel. Reason… reason leads to truth and conviction comes by the holy Spirit.
“Once again Lee lays out a clear, perfectly reasoned argument– this time, showing that God is alive and working in miraculous ways in our world right now.”

If one would need more to ponder on, let them find good reason to do so!
We have two choices, mankind’s answer to reason…
or God’s view of our purpose?
